Just as the media’s coverage of the war between Israel and Hamas said that of course Israel had a right to defend herself, buuuuuuut…, these same journalists interviewing Ms. Geller start out by saying that of course we support free speech and that

Keith Ellison (D'MN)21% —has become ground zero for the threat to the United States from Islamist terror groups such as ISIS and Al'Shabaab. As Minnesota CBS affiliate WCCO reports: In recent months, Elton Simpson,
